Two interesting economists (by Pedja dell’Arno)

Browsing the Internet for research purposes one sometimes finds scholars that one should have come across long ago. Here are two examples:
Ajit Singh
and Ha-Joon Chang
Both are from Cambridge University and of Asian origin.
Both are development economists that, using mostly mainstream economics, point out standard market failures that justify policies that depart from laissez-faire. Not very original, but very necessary. Since it is common to blame economists for the evils of the current economic and financial crisis, here are two interesting economists that should not be blamed.
